Some like to involve themselves in an activity, others are satisfied to be spectators. Like other years, that’s how the Clark Lake Polar Plunge will play out in 2016. So far 31 people have signed up to jump into Clark Lake on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at Eagle Point. The bubblers around the marina docks keep the water open at a time when most, if not all, of the rest of the lake is frozen solid. That allows the participants to make their jumps into incredibly cold water.
This is a fund raiser for Special Olympics and is one of 29 Polar Plunges in Michigan. These events are part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run. Involved are law enforcement and corrections officers who raise funds year around.
Registration begins at 8:30 am. The parade of costumes starts at 10 am and the plunge commences at 10:15 am. The awards and After Splash Bash will take place at the Pointe Bar and Grill right after the last plunge.
In the meantime, please enjoy some of the photos from last year’s plunge.
